Vegetarian: Beans on Rice

Today's recipe is a non traditional Vegetarian Meal! I love having a filling meal without being stuffed!
Beans on Rice:
Grocery List:
2 tsp oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 cube vegetable broth
1 box frozen chopped kale (or spinach)
2 cans black beans, rinsed
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp each dried thyme and ground cumin

How to make it:
1. Heat oil in a 3-qt saucepan. Add onion and sauté 2 to 3 minutes until translucent. Stir in garlic; cook 30 seconds or until mixture is fragrant.

2. Add 1 cup water, the broth cube and kale. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes until kale thaws. Add beans, paprika, thyme and cumin; simmer 5 minutes to develop flavor.
Serve over rice with lemon wedges and hot sauce.

**When cooking rice, shred a carrot or two and add to the boiling water just before adding the rice.
**Serve with boiled and salted Edamame
